It is not just another crow! I’ll have you know that I have now begun to identify the different ones that come to the “diner’ when I feed. LOL not maybe on a personal basis, but I am beginning to note the regulars.. and find it kind of fun.. that when I watch them, come and go during the “feeding” I can see the ones that have the discriminating taste, ie. they will pick up something and decide ..no it is too big, or not to their fancy and move on.. The watcher who will stand back and take in what is laid out and then go after what he/she decides it wants.
The birds at Dewberry are also becoming more familiar to me, There are the females who will come and eat before I leave the feeder, the males who watch from a distance, ,plan their strategy, then by different routes they will advance and plan their landing, where a feeder is and how easily it is to get to and land with confidence. A sloppy landing means that the bird already at the “table” will not leave or move over. there are several of the female Gross Beaks who will now casually have their snack and visit with me.. they actually make eye contact and chew slowly almost smile. One the other day, moved over to a branch and just chirped at me softly. staying with me till I moved to adjust something at another feeder.
There are crows there too, but they pay me no heed. In fact they have nothing to do with me. I am learning that their are “murders” of them at Mer Bleue too, they apparently come and chase everyone away at the very start of the day, I’ve yet to be there when they have been there. However I have seen the results of one of their raids at Dewberry, I wondered how things got so turned upside down and vandalized. Now I know… the dining areas are raided by the crows. =^_^=
